It's Spring!

“To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring.”

~George Santayana

I know where George is coming from, but I can't help it...I AM hopelessly in love with spring. It seems like such a long time since I've seen robins and daffodils. Yesterday morning, I saw a male and female bluebird inspecting the bluebird house in my yard. I hope they end up moving in. And today, I planted lettuce, spinach, and a bunch of arugula in the garden. I'm really looking forward to asparagus and fresh peas and being able to open the windows of my house. It's not quite time to put the winter clothes away but it will be soon. Happy Spring!

These crocus popped up in my yard a couple of weeks ago, and the lenten roses are blooming like crazy in a park near my office.

So beautiful :-)

Oh how I used to be so excited when the first signs of spring arrived. Since the weather does not change as dramatically here in March/April, I no longer get as excited seeing the changes in the weather but spring also means the start of the baseball season. Spring has always been one of my favorite seasons. I love your photo of the crocus.

sheri:

Happy Spring,Annie. I just noticed some greenery out back yesterday. It made me so happy after such a dreadful winter!

Eden:

Love your photos.

I like spring because it means summer is around the corner... :) I love summer. (Spring for me means sneezing.)

Happy Spring - rebirth, renewal, got to love all of it~not to mention the first buds. Can't wait. Crocuses here are still hiding..m

sandrac:

I so agree, Annie! Spring really feels like re-birth.

I love your crocuses!

I love your photos, Annie. And I agree, Spring is very uplifting.

Anne:

So are those the lenten roses in the bottom two photos? I've never heard of these flowers, they are lovely!

I had spring fever over the weekend for sure, we had a glorious riot of sunshine and warm temps for a few days - sheer bliss!! While we were at the campground, Val and I grabbed hands like little girls and skipped up the road (much to Moira and Kaleigh's deepest dismay!! LOL So tough to be the teenager daughters of goofy moms, eh?!)

My own crocuses are up too, same colour as yours. And my rhubard is peeking out of the ground already too, can't wait for that yummy goodness!

Excellent post - thanks!!

Anne, yes. They are also called hellebores (not sure if I spelled that right). One of the earliest bloomers here in NC along with camellias. Glad you've got spring fever weather too!

Love your spring flowers! Spring here means Spring training! And like Eden, it means sneezing.

We got so much rain this winter that the desert is going to be carpeted with wildflowers. I can’t wait to go out there and see them. Hopefully I won't forget to bring my camera.
